Thread: Cabinet heater

  1. #1

    Cabinet heater

    I've done a search and found that reptile mats seem to be quite popular as cabinet heaters.
    My question is...what wattage / size do folk have?.
    It's for a 6 gun cabinet.
    A link to would be handy if possible.
    Thanks.

    Don't do it, your woodwork will crack as will it when using Silica gel bags.

    Why would you want to heat your gun safe ?

    To stop damp forming.
    Nothing fierce,just a few watts is the idea.

    Where's your cabinet located?

    My cabinets are in an unheated area, always give the guns metalwork a wipe with Leiga spray, never any issues with damp, rust etc. Pondered the use of silica gel bags, glad I haven't now I've seen RD's post.

    Risking a reply from Luckyeddie i think stocks should retain about 5% moisture to keep them hard and free of cracking. I have gun socks on mine and in an unheated but dry cupboard.

    Cabinet in a built in wardrobe and bolted to outside wall.
    Can get a bit chilly in there so the idea is just to lift the temp to normal room temp.
    Guns are synthetic furniture except for a Mossberg pump which I think will be ok.

    You could try one of the low voltage greenhouse heaters in the wardrobe that way increasing the overall temperature of the wardrobe and cabinet
